LOS ANGELES, CA. (CNN) – It wasn’t an episode of the crime drama “N-C-I-S: Los Angeles,” but it could have been.  Hip hop pioneer L-L Cool J plays a special agent on the hit show.  And maybe some of that training came in handy early today.

The entertainer suddenly found himself face-to-face with a burglar in his Los Angeles home.  

Police say the suspect broke in, setting off the alarm and alerting Cool J.  Then, the rapper subdued the suspect until officers arrived.

The L-A-P-D confirms the would-be thief was jailed in Los Angeles.  There’s no word, yet on charges.
L-L Cool J’s rep says the actor and his family are safe, and cooperating with authorities.
